The after mass

Corran from Rangiora

Saw this this comment on Quora Digest: ‘As a Trump follower how, many people are willing for others to die from the virus for the sake of reopening the economy. So, I wondered how many of those here in our wonderful country of NZ are willing to allow others to die while they complain/moan about what the government did, How the lockdown affected about their business, The unemployment. About the budget about this and that??? Or are they grateful for what the Government did instead. Better than just everyone else in the world. Funny thing was just about everyone I talked to while in lockdown said the Government

wasdoing the right thing. Now I hear some of these same people moaning!!! Hum.

Poll: Should Kiwis be entitled to more sick leave?

The Team Reporter from Stuff

With Covid-19 still a very real risk, people who are unwell are told to stay home, and to keep any sickly kids home too - but what if you don't have any more sick leave owing?

Most Kiwis are entitled to five days of sick leave a year, but some - often those in lower paid jobs - get less.

New Zealand’s minimum sick leave allowance is one of the lowest in the OECD. In Australia they get 10 days, in most European countries it’s even more.
